President of the Nigeria Football Federation and member of the FIFA Council, Amaju Pinnick, has been appointed into a new role within the working group of the world football governing body.
The General Secretary of the Confederation of African Football (CAF), Véron Mosengo-Omba, confirmed Pinnick’s appointment in a letter dated 11 April, the NFF said.
According to the federation, Pinnick was informed that he had been nominated by CAF President, Dr Joseph Motsepe, to be part of the newly established Working Group on Normalisation Committees.
“This joint working group, to be led by FIFA, will analyse the applicable legal framework and the governance structure, mandate, and mission of normalisation committees, and make suggestions to the FIFA Council accordingly,” Mosengo-Omba was quoted as saying in the letter.
“We are confident that your nomination to this working group will positively contribute to the pertinent, and often essential, role played by Normalisation Committees in support of federations and towards the fulfillment of good governance practices.”
